About the Lawsuit

Maxwell and certain of its senior executives are charged with issuing a series
of materially false and misleading statements, during the Class Period, in
violation of federal securities laws.

These false statements and omissions included, in part, the following: (i) the
Company was suffering from deficient internal controls and procedures; (ii)
the Company had filed to disclose its true financial and operational
condition; and (iii) the Company failed to disclose that its financial
statements were materially false and misleading.

On March 8, 2013 shares of Maxwell fell 11% to close at $8.10.This decline
followed the announcement that Maxwell would restate its financial results for
2011 and 2012, due to errors related to the recognition of revenue.
